OK, here's how I would do it. First of all, I'd use brick stitch rather than peyote. Peyote would need to be done down the length of the sides, whereas brick stitch will work from one end of each side to the other, if that make sense.

First of all, it looks to be about 8 beads around. Make a ladder stitch base 8 beads around, and make it into a circle. Leave a long tail (12" min.). Bead it into a tube 17 rows high, then start decreasing it. The decreased part won't be a tube, just open, like you would do a brick stitch earring. At the other end of the tube, decrease it the same way. Make 2 more tubes, then weave the corners together.

I realize these instructions require some bead weaving experience. About.com or a general web search will turn up all kinds of instructions on brick stitch if you don't know it.

Sounds confusing. I'll have to google some of those techniques. Thanks for the help.  Smiley

I think it kind of looks like the top to a beaded triangle box, but with a hole in the center, and two of them combined into one piece (that was probably confusing for everyone not in my head right now)
I'm trying to find a pic... oh here is one I copied from the back of my fav book! (which I really need to buy and let the library have their copy back for more than a few days)  In the book, Little Bead Boxes by Julia S Pretl, it goes into more detail about the making of each box and how to read the charts.

When in doubt, use more glue!

It appears to me that it is indeed peyote stitch, and that (as others have mentioned), each side is beaded independently and then joined.

If you start with the "inside" long side and bead "up", you would just increase on both ends every time for as many rows as thickness-of-side that you want. That way, you'll end up with the staggered bits that angle in such a way that they fit together when you're done.

Now, I'm intrigued. I've GOT to try this for myself.

I blame you  Tongue (joking - it'll be fun).

Let's both try!

Good luck,
~CD~

p.s. Is it flat or does it have dimension to it (are the sides tube-ish?). On second look, it looks like the sides could be tube-shaped.

Thanks for your input! I'm gonna give it a shot over the weekend and if I can accomplish it. I really want to learn this technique. It would look great with some of my planned pieces.

PS - It looks tubular to me...atleast that's the look I'm shooting for! Wink

Hmm . . .

I wonder if it would be possible to do this is a flat piece which is zipped as the final step to creating each side.

If so, one could start with the length of the short side. Increase evenly up to the longest length of each side, then continue to evenly decrease to the length of the starting short side length.

Then zipping up should (if I'm picturing this correctly) result in the staggered end bits.

This is gonna be fun Smiley

Well if you experiment with this and get good results let me know how you did it!  Cheesy I'll be experimenting this weekend hopefully!

ROFL!

I'm still thinking about this.

I have another idea.

I think I'll try making a standard tube the size of the shortest side, and then reduce along both edges (after it is complete) to a single bead because it looks like the ends need to be more "open" and less of a closed tube in order to accommodate the join.

Fun stuff!

LMAO! I am still thinking too. I'm semi-new to peyote...I've only done 4 or 5 cuffs. I've never done free-form, increasing, decreasing, tubular peyote...NOTHING! I just have to experiment while looking at the picture. LOL!
